In connection with the registration, a one-time registration fee will be charged to each new member. In addition to this, members are also charged an annual fee and a recycling fee. The Board of Akkukierrätys Pb Oy determines the level of the recycling fee twice a year. Currently, the recycling fee is € 1.5/tonne (+ VAT). Annual fee for the year 2021 is 150 € (+ VAT).
The recycling fee is charged by tonne for all lead-acid batteries put on the market. ‘Lead-acid batteries put on the market’ refers to new lead-acid batteries imported, lead-acid batteries imported in new vehicles and equipment, as well as lead-acid batteries imported in used vehicles and equipment, meaning all batteries that will end up being recycled in Finland at some point.
